Newspaper Suffers Deadly Attack, Publishes the Next Day

Authorities identified Maryland shooting suspect using facial recognition software

Capital Gazette staff writers Phil Davis and Selene San Felice joined Anderson Cooper by phone on CNN just hours after they survived the deadly mass shooting in their newsroom to talk about what happened.

Tom Marquardt, retired publisher and top editor at the paper, told The Capital Gazette on Thursday that he had always been concerned about Ramos' history of escalating social media attacks against the newspaper and its journalists.

The paper arrived on doorsteps and at convenience stores as promised, with a headline of, "5 shot dead at The Capital".

"We are heartbroken, devastated".

"No matter how deep", he added, "our loss is nothing compared to the grief our friends' families are feeling".

The suspect, Jarrod Ramos, allegedly walked into the newspaper office at 888 Bestgate Road in Annapolis with a shotgun and fatally shot four journalists and a sales assistant.

Cowherd and others said they would remember Hiaasen for how he lived, rather than the way he died senselessly at the hands of a gunman twisted by hate and festering rage.

And then it named all five of them, starting with Fischman, the award-winning Opinion page editor. It said "today we are speechless", but promised to return the next day.

The Capital reports that Mayor Gavin Buckley announced the plans during a visit Monday to a temporary Capital Gazette newsroom.

Staff who survived the shooting - by a man described as having a long running grudge against the paper - worked outside Thursday after the massacre, in a auto park or even from the back of a pickup truck. In a later interview on the paper's online site, Davis likened the newspaper office to a "war zone".

Altomare also said that employees Rachel Pacella and Janet Cooley had been treated at a hospital and released after being injured during Thursday's attack.

"I'll tell you when it first started to happen, I mean, you just immediately go into panic mode", he said, according to The Daily Beast. But in this day and age, newspaper production can be done remotely. Some of the greatest people I know are reporters, and people in the media, ' he told a group of journalists aboard Air Force One en route to his New Jersey golf resort for the weekend.

Cook's defiant tweet was picked up and cheered by thousands of journalists and well-wishers.

"He was a philosopher and a poet", said Tina Reed, a former Capital reporter.

There was an outpouring from journalists - both from rival Maryland newsrooms and from others across the country - offering to help. "My heart goes out to the victims, their families and the entire Annapolis community for this bad and senseless tragedy".

Cook's was the first of 10 bylines on Friday's front page, on the only story that mattered, about the shooting deaths of his Capital colleagues.

The main story mentioned the gunman, but it was largely a tribute to the staffers.
